Rwanda sheds light on new SIM card regulations

From January 31st, national and foreigners with work permits or refugees will be allowed a maximum of three SIM cards on each network, bringing the maximum to six, with three on MTN and three on Airtel. SIM cards on each network.

The new regulations will, however, have exemptions for specific cases such as parents and children under the age of 18 and would like to acquire sim-cards on behalf of their children.

The move would also include corporates and businesses who would like to have multiple sim-cards for their operations and employees.

RURA, George Kwizera Director of ICT Scarce Resources Management and Management Amongst them were telcos, Rwanda Investigation Bureau, and National Identification Agency.

Some of the challenges that triggered the changes include instances of simulated cards. "It is very common to find 10 sim-cards registered under one's identity card without their knowledge. Kwizera said: "This is one of the easiest ways to get free," Kwizera said

The regulator also recommends subscribers to check the numbers and to register those extra SIMs that are unknown or inactive.
